Floating Islands

Ingredients

4 eggs, separated
1 cup sugar
2½ cups milk
Vanilla or nutmeg to taste
½ cup water and another
2 tbsp of water

Preparation

  • Beat the egg yolks with half cup of sugar until fluffy. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks appear. Add another quarter cup of sugar and beat until stiff.
  • Heat the milk in a large bowl or saucepan. Drop the egg whites by heaping tablespoon into the hot milk. When done, remove to a hot platter. The egg white balls take only one minute to cook.
  • When all the egg white is cooked, add the egg yolk and sugar mixture to the milk in the saucepan. Stir quickly until a golden cream forms. (Make sure that this mixture does not come to a boil). Flavor with vanilla or nutmeg to taste and pour over the egg whites.
  • Caramelize the remaining quarter cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons water over medium heat to obtain a light, golden syrup. Using a fork, pour the caramel in long shreds, over the egg snow until all the syrup has been used.
